    Hi

    I live in country Tasmania Aus and a mate has a few old percussion cap handguns which apparently came from Germany in the late 1800s and I was wondering who I could talk to regarding these.

    I have many more detailed pictures and would love to know what these are if anyone could help

    Welcome to TFF. Your photos might be clearer taken outside in natural light.

    The double barrel percussion pistol appears to be in best condition, and I believe the inscription reads Roper, Halifax? Boothroyd's Directory of British Gunmakers lists a Roper & Edmunds in Halifax, Yorkshire 1854-1857.

    Agree with hrf about the side by side pistol. The over/under percussion needs detail photos to understand its construction.`The revolver looks like a Colt 1851 Navy & also needs more & better photos.

    I have little doubt that if you simply supply the additional photos right here, you'll find a number of people who will talk to you regarding them; people who may be very helpful in sorting things out.

    And welcome to TFF.
